across the country. so each and every one of us here should look forward to the day with great interest and anticipation. the issues being debated today have been chosen by members of the youth parliament with the help of over a quarter of a million of your peers, and i think i'm right in saying and emphasizing of the five topics being debated, four were chosen by the public vote, and one by nyp themselves namely curriculum for life. today, of course, you debating whether to choosing the issue which you wish to have as your national campaign. this debate is one of the highlights of parliament week, and schools across the country have been taking part in create the debate, a project to encourage them to stage their own debates on the very issues which the u.k. yb are discussing in the combat. we know schools across the country are tuning in to watch and that is hugely welcome. just on process and housekeeping, let me say the following. first, nyp who wish to speak should stand in their place, or raise their hands if seated in a wheelchair. secondly, and most importantly, nyp should alway
. just for the commission i think there will be some interesting things for us to look at recommendation-wise. the third thing has to do with the tragedy in connecticut. my day job is we're building a center in bayview to address the impact of adverse childhood experience and exposure to violence and trauma on children. obviously this type of trauma is in a league of its own. but one of the experts we work with is dr. victor care 81 from stanford and he shared with me and i shared with my daughter's school so i want to share with everyone, a lot of us are hearing recommendations on the today show but we benefit from the bayview area with having access to these experts. i want to share these recommendations on children exposed to violence. the first is that we should reduce exposure, children need protection from the media, which is pretty intuitive but a good reminder for me. talking about the event should not be clear but lines of discourse should be open. provide a message of safety and i think that's what we're talking about here, especially the police department represents tha

come up more than once. it is not a training issue for us. it is department policy. it is city law. it is what we have been raised on. >> does the department have the authority to control that information within its own database so it is and shared with the federal authorities? >> what information is that? >> my understanding is there is no opt in and out. maybe commissioner chan can say something. >> secure communities is a post-arrest situation, a sheriff situation. those questions are not asked at the police department level. >> the chief has been extremely supportive of efforts by community groups. chief beal recently met with community groups about the same issue, that is something they have been receptive, trying to address. -- has resulted in over 638 deportations as of august this year. it has an impact on the victims of domestic violence. it is a continual problem. >> but not from the san francisco police department. >> there is a reason case, longer story. not because of the specific police officers fall; this program has a direct connection to the immigration da

that did not make sense to us. we wanted this to be 18 and over. we have been 21 andover. there was ample precedents for these events in the city. it was our personal belief that if you could fight or die for the country or vote in an election, you should be able to go to a party. [applause] the folks that we were working with at the police department were hesitant about that. to address their concerns we agreed to very stringent beer gardens, which we did not feel like needed, but we did it in order to produce the event. later, we found out it would not be an 18 and older event. it essentially became a non- negotiable item. if we wanted them to sign off on the permit, with a bar, which was a major revenue stream, we had to be 21 and over. being a promoter and organizer with a long history of doing these events without problems, with a curved track record, that seemed like a perfect result. the police requirement at the event looked like two cops, with no problems with nothing to do, there were five officers at the event now, which we had to pay overtime fees for. trying to discuss this w
>>> my name is chris stevens, i'm the new u.s. ambassador to libya. i had the honor to serve as the envoy to the libyan revolution and i was thrilled to watch the libyan people stand up and demand their rights. now i'm excited to return to libya to continue the great work we've started, building a solid partnership between the united states and libya to help you the libyan people achieve your goals. right now i'm in washington, preparing for my assignment. as i walk around the monuments and memorials commemorating the courageous men and women that made america what it is, i'm reminded we too went through challenging periods, when america was divided by a bitter civil war 150 years ago. president abraham lincoln had the vision to pull us together toward a shared goal of peace and prosperity. growing up in california i didn't know much about the arab world. then after graduating from the university of california at berkeley, i traveled to north africa as peace corps engineer. i worked as an english teacher in morocco two years and quickly grew to love this part of the world. si
minutes. but amman starts us out. >> it seems they are really hashing out details of what to do about the sequester, those are the massive spending cuts. how long you delay those down and otherwise pay for them seems to be the crux of the negotiation going on behind closed doors right now but it is very difficult to find out exactly where these negotiations stand because all sides are being very, very mum. we can tell you that democrats appear to be getting a little bit concerned about where this is headed. take a listen to senator tom harkin who took to the senate floor earlier today. >> the deal must be one that really does favor the middle class, the real middle class, those making 30, 50, 60, $70,000 a year. that's the real middle class in america. and as i see this thing developing, quite frankly, as i've said before, no deal is better than a bad deal and this looks like a very bad deal the way this is shaping up. >> 10 he knows more about the way this is shaping up than we do of course from the outside looking in. but we've also been told that president is going to speak at 1:30
. but you get one chance. how? have a seat. if you tell us everything, we will offer you protection. all right, here's a list of employees who have policies that have died in the last five years. circle all the names you're responsible for. let me ask you a question, mr. yates. you're just the numbers cruncher here, right? so you didn't come up with this plan on your own. who's behind this? you'll tell the judge that i helped you? yes. my ceo, desalvo. he said, "we have the policies, why not use them?" he told me i'd have "lifetime employment" if i did this. do you have anything that can prove that? like a little trail of bread crumbs? desalvo's not that stupid. forgot to circle jeff lofton. because i had nothing to do with that. i swear. excuse us for a moment. this guy just gave us half a dozen murders. what's the problem? here's the thing: if we don't have any hard evidence, it's going to be desalvo's word against his. well, then our ceo walks. exactly. and we still have to figure out who killed jeff lofton. Ñe hey, did you get my message? yeah, patrol found our missing girl. yeah, t
over the fiscal cliff and will take almost every american with us. almost every family that pays taxes now will pay higher taxes. people's jobs will immediately be put in jeopardy, unemployment compensation will end for more than 2 million people, our defenses will be decimated by cuts that will put us in a position of accepting really unacceptable risks to our security, title 1 programs of education for low-income children will be cut dramatically, most people, including the congressional budget office, our own congressional budget office, say that the combination of tax increases along with the decreased spending required under the budget control act will push our economy back into recession in the new year. so i don't agree that no deal is better than a bad deal. in this case, i repeat, no deal is the worst deal because it allows our country to go over the fiscal cliff and really hurts almost every american family in our country, in our economy, as a whole. this shouldn't be a surprise to us. it's not as if, if i could use the metaphor, that congress was going along in a bus and --
in french. so i decided to use my time at sea to revise my friend by reading a novel in that language. the book i chose is a small paperback edition of jules burns, all "around the world in 80 days," first published in 1872. when i wasn't on watcher otherwise busy on the ship, i slowly made my way to the book. my french was good enough to my surprise but i enjoyed the story and as a historian i appreciated the period detail. in nature, racing around the world. and his london club, he remarked offhandedly the schedule travel services could take personal around the globe in a period of 80 days. prove it, the clubman challenge him, and he's off. the 80 damage was a conceivable i believe 19th century. in the agency of them getting around the world had taken months or even years. the speed of my citizenship would have lost participant. it was the invention of steam power but also the creation of regimental empires around the globe, the opening of the suez canal and the emergence of commercial travel services that together made it just possible by the 1870s to do the global circuit in 80 da
of. [laughter] there's similarities between t.s. eliot and me. we both use foreign languages in our poetry. he tends to use more sanskrit. actually don't know much of it. i was a kid who'd got dreamy during sanskrit class in kansas city, missouri. [laughter] to look out the window. i use some yiddish. [laughter] it is fair to say that t.s. eliot was not partial to yiddish. my shortest poem uses yiddish. it was called something like this societal political and philosophical implications of the o.j. simpson trial. the title does not count. the plan was o.j. or a vague [laughter] -o.j. oi vey and then -- we both use a little german when george w. bush appointed a retainer that rhymed roberto gonzales. we both cried about animals and he famously wrote a lot of things about cats. my daughter said once at the dinner table that daddy hates cats. i said daddy does not. that would be prejudice and you girls have been brought up to '04 her prejudice. daddy never met a cat that he liked.
